Basketball Themed Birthday Party

Andrea Lee and Jamie Wong of Coquette Events designed this contemporary, baby-friendly birthday party for Todd’s first birthday, with Greg Ma on hand to photograph all the details. The fun basketball theme was inspired by Todd’s dad’s love for the game, and it opened the door for all the little details you see here. The orange, baby blue, and white color scheme paired with argyle and polka dots ties it all together perfectly. They displayed Todd’s photos from his first year on a shelf to document “Todd’s First Season Highlights” with labels detailing his baby milestones. The fabulous dessert table was a combined effort from two different vendors and Todd’s mom. Love Bites Bakeshop created the snickerdoodle cupcakes, chocolate chip cookie sandwiches, and mini chocolate cupcakes, while Dream Cakes by Maggie provided the fondant toppers on the mini cupcakes, basketball cakepops, the large cake, and sugar cookies. Todd’s mom added the Japanese mochi. See more photos by Greg Ma in the full gallery!

    OMG. If we were having a boy (and if we were pregnant!) I’m positive this is the party that my husband would love to have. He might even hang around for it!! This is gorgeous! I’ll have to keep this bookmarked for when the day comes…whenever that is!

    [...] I was approached by Jamie from Coquette Events to make a basketball themed desserts for one year old birthday party.  This was one exciting order since I was asked to make several different desserts.  I created a basketball themed giant cupcake with fondant topper, cupcake fondant toppers, basketball cake pops, basketball cookies and Jordan III sugar cookies.  The photos were taken by Greg Ma. Our desserts were also featured on On to Baby. [...]
